Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Tiny Post enables users to make stories out of their photos with the ability to write over the images.
“The Tiny Post team have created a wonderful app that shows the possibilities of combining travel photos with social and mobile,” says Steve Kaufer, TripAdvisor CEO. “We think Tiny Post is a great fit with our continued drive to provide engaging and sharable content and I am happy to welcome this strong team to TripAdvisor.”
Members of the Tiny Post team will work out of TripAdvisor’s Palo Alto, California, office.
